TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBEROctober 2, 2023 – 10/2/2023Joshua 10:2 (NKJV)that they feared greatly, because Gibeon was a great city, like one of the royal cities, and because it was greater than Ai, and all its men were mighty.There is something inside us that marvels at the people who are mighty. I find myself wondering how God produces might within us to overcome even the smallest of hurdles. We find later in Joshua 10 that God delivered their enemy into their hand. Maybe it’s not what we possess so much, as it is what we stand for in this hour. A great victory is coming for the body of Christ where God will deliver our enemies into our hands. Are you standing in the valley of indecision and fear, or are you like Joshua with your mighty men of valor, ready and waiting for God to deliver your enemies to your hand?Declaration: I declare and decree, I will not be in awe of my enemies. I will fear no evil! My enemies are delivered by the hand of God at my feet! I am a mighty warrior of valor for the Lord!
 2 KINGS 13:20-21Elisha passed away, and they buried him. In the spring of the year, marauding bands from Moab invaded the land. While they were burying a man, they suddenly spotted raiders. They placed the man in Elisha’s tomb, and when the man’s body touched Elisha’s bones, he came back to life and stood on his feet.

Today, I challenge you. I understand that most of us do not wake up in the morning pondering whom we will resurrect, but isn’t it a worthy aspiration? Jesus proclaimed that we would perform even greater works than HIM! Today, I challenge your spirit. We often fall into the habit of thinking that we can abide by the status quo, forgetting that we are placed here to heal the sick and raise the dead. I am uncertain where you stand in your faith journey, but I assure you there is more!

Many years ago, a thought surfaced within me when I did not know the Lord well: “There must be more to God than this!” 
Friends there indeed is! Elisha serves as just one example of the Lord using us to accomplish remarkable feats. He will use you as well! I encourage you; your voice carries weight! The humility with which you conduct yourself holds significance! God will employ everything you offer Him and then some! He has selected you to bear the light He ignited within you years ago. He challenges you to forge a path where none seems to exist.

The potency of a double anointing is undeniably formidable, but the words of Jesus persist in my mind: “greater than this.” I want you to understand that God is greater—far more than you can ask or think.2 Kings 2:9“When they had crossed over, Elijah said to Elisha, ‘Ask! What may I do for you before I am taken away from you?’ Elisha said, ‘Please grant me a double portion of your spirit.’ So he said, ‘You have requested a difficult thing. Nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you, it will be yours; but if not, it will not be so.'”

Visualize yourself as Elisha did, endowed with a double portion, and embrace what it signifies to walk in the greater works until one day you awaken with the thought in your mind,
“Who are we resurrecting from the dead today, Jesus?”
